Paul's 16mm Film Sale

How the sale works:

Read this first!  You may use this web form to select the films you want, or you can e-mail me a list, if you prefer.  I will then email you back telling you which films are available, and the total cost.  I am estimating the shipping cost based on the size of the reels, or by what fits in a flat-rate box.  You can then either mail a check or money order, or you may use Paypal to pay by credit card.  All films are subject to prior sale.  This page is not updated automatically when a film is sold,  I need to edit it manually, so there likely will be films listed that are already sold.  At best, I will be able to do this once a day; sometimes it will take longer.   You are welcome to request alternative titles, and decline them later.  If payment is not received within 10 days of ordering, the films will be relisted.  If I mark a film as "SOLD", that means that I have received and order, but have not yet received payment.

Because I am notifying several people simultaneously about this list, it may take me 2-3 days to figure out who is first on which and get back to you, so please be patient.  Again, everything is first come, first served.

Most of these films are former library prints, and the condition is variable.  I have tried to examine them and describe the condition.  Please do not expect perfection.  I have not watched these films all the way through.  These films are sold for home use only, no rights given or implied.

The films are shipped from the United States.  I prefer to ship by USPS.  Media Mail will be the cheapest. International buyers beware that international postal rates have increased substantially recently. If you prefer not to use USPS, I can ship by Fedex Ground within the U.S.

How I estimate shipping costs:

To simplify things and minimize shipping costs, I am basing the shipping on reel size.

I am estimating the weight for each reel as follows:
400 ft (122 m): 2 lbs.
600 ft (183 m): 3 lbs.
800 ft (244 m): 4 lbs.
1200 ft (366 m): 6 lbs.
1600 ft (488 m): 8 lbs.

I am offering Media Mail as a low cost alternative within the U.S.  Be aware that it can be quite slow.  Rates are listed below.

Priority Mail flat-rate envelopes and boxes are the most economical faster method, especially for international shipping.

The flat-rate envelope fits one 400 ft reel.
(The weight limit for the flat-rate envelope is 4 pounds).

The small flat-rate box fits one 1200 ft or up to three 800 ft or up to six 400 ft reels.  It is usually possible to fit three 1200 ft or 1600 ft films in the flat-rate box, if they are on cores.  There will be a $5 per reel charge for transferring films onto cores.  (The maximum weight is 20 lbs.)

The large flat-rate box fits six 1200 ft reels (without cans), six 800 ft reels, or twelve 400 ft reels (or other combinations).  (The maximum weight is 20 lbs.)
